    This or 55 sony x900?

      OLED any day of the week over LCD.

      •  

        Hmm yeah just read some reviews, will probably go OLED as some say OLED is still good in bright rooms anyway.

        •  

          This is so much better than any LCD on the market. I had the pleasure of walking in to a jb hifi where every TV had the Lego movie on and this blew everything else away.

        •  

          @carleast:

          It dosnt score the best across the board. Sports the Sony 9400 is better. Check out rt

          In any event I’m gona resist and save the cash till Xmas. Mainly coz I’ll be flat out till then to actually watch anything.

          Also want a decent sound bar but they are like 1.5k alone. :-(

    Good to see the prices fall on these things.

    • +2 votes

      They're not falling. TGG just uncharacteristically decided not to jack the price when ebay subsidized it. Normally sellers like to take the piss out of ebay with these sales.

      • +4 votes

        Still means the same. All time low prices means the prices are falling!!!!!!

      •  

        Prices seem to fall in blocks for these items rather than a gradual drop in price. I remember when OLED 65" 4K panels were around the $8000~$9000 mark around 2 years ago (@ TGG / HN in store) so over a 24 month period we've seen a 50% price reduction when factoring in the ebay sale not to mention benefits the newer panels have over their older siblings.

        OLEDS will like any newish technology drops in price over time. Originally OLED yields were I believe 10%, and are now much higher. That LG is selling panels to other manufacturers (Sony, Panasonic) suggests they feel confident in being able to meet supply and demand with their current yield levels.

        Actual yield rates seem to vary from websites ranging from 65% to 85%. Price won't of course drop correspondingly as LG will want to recover costs incurred over the years in R&D and earlier production runs.

        LG have the former intel tick/tock type cadence, with next years models being the next generation, and the panels the following year (2019) being an enhancement of 2018 model. Next years panels might have better and more cost-effective manufacturing methods for all we know.

        Might be worth mentioning that the Panasonic OLED page lists a 77" OLED coming soon and perhaps this will help drop the price of the 65" a notch (which is better than nothing). Upon further research seems LG already have the 77" out at an eyewatering price of US$19999.99 (Suggested Price) but currently on promotion at only US$10999.99.. At that price the 65" at $4K is a bargain.

        Really wish I could afford a set like this…. Perhaps this time next year I'll be in a position to splurge in time for Christmas.

        • +1 vote

          I'll wait for next year's model then. I'm in no hurry.

          I don't have any 4K content, except fake 4K from a PS4.

          It should be cheaper next year also.

        • +1 vote

          Yeah I hope the LG OLED has better motion next year because 'TrueMotion' kinda sucks.

          Still waiting for a manufacturer to make an OLED with plasma-like motion. That'd be much better.

        •  

          @Ryballs:
          I miss plasma.
          OLED looks good, but it sucks that we've been stuck with LCD, when we already had a much better technology.

        •  

          I think that a 90” projector replacement would be amazing if it ever came out and was under 10k.

          That’s where it’s at.

  •  

    I paid $40 for shipping from the last Bing Lee offer and it still hasn't been delivered, when I could probably pick this up COB today and be $40 in the good.

    •  

      I ordered the 65" at 10 this morning and got a call at 10:45 to organise delivery for tomorrow :)

      •  

        Just on this, so GG do call you to arrange the delivery time?

        •  

          Or call to say ready for pick up.
          That's what happened when buying a camera a while back.

        •  

          I ordered one a few weeks back and GG called me less than an hour later to deliver the next day. They were deally good.

  •  

    Is there any significant image quality difference between this and regular LCD for free to air TV. They look great with the demo images in the shop but not sure about general TV shows.

    •  

      Not sure if FTA is upscaled. If they arent, then the SD channels might look pretty horrid.

      • +1 vote

        I think you'll find all modern TVs upscale SD content, some are just better at it than others. Upscaling is basically just stretching lower resolution video to fill the screen.

        OLED generally looks best for all content, regardless of resolution. This is due to its very high native contrast. The difference is particularly apparent in a dimly lit or dark room.

        • +1 vote

          Agreed about the darker scenes.

          But its very high contrast sacrifices colour accuracy for niceness. Some are into what looks better, some prefer it to look as accurate as it should.

        • +1 vote

          If you care that much about colour accuracy you'd get the TV professionally calibrated. After cal this TV has colour dE of less than 2, which means that the inaccuracy is not visible to the naked eye.

        •  

          @Ryballs: I could. But it seems cheaper to just buy LCD. It loses much of the charm of OLED. I'd only get it if I didn't want accuracy.

  •  

    A lot of people would say the Panasonic 1000 is better (and it’d wanna be, it’s a lot more expensive), even the 950 and the Sony A1. Each has its strength. Can’t beat that price though.

    • +3 votes

      The main issue with Panasonic's OLED is that it doesn't support Dolby Vision. It also has higher input lag. Other than that it's probably the superior TV.

      •  

        Also the LG is brighter due to the higher threshold in its automatic brightness limiter. Panasonic has the best colour of the lot. Sony best for less than pristine sources. Tough call..

        • +2 votes

          Yeah it's tough. Personally I'd get LG for gaming, Sony for sport and Panasonic for (non-DV) movies. I don't think that'd go down well with the wife though.

        •  

          Any comment on how the motion compares? Seen an LG and on everything except game mode it had that artificial look (high fps/motion smoothing/whatever). Love my Panasonic plasma for many reasons, and wondering if OLED is going to be ok from a motion perspective.

        • +1 vote

          If you want the best motion, stick with your plasma till it dies. They are still king in that regard.

          OLED is superior in every other way though. Still don't have plasma-like motion (aka BFI) yet for some reason.

        • +1 vote

          @skitzor: I'm in the same boat, still have a plasma, considering an upgrade.

          From everything I've read, Panasonic OLED is the best for motion.

          Had a look at a Sony A1 in a shop yesterday, I have to say it looked absolutely amazing. First time I've seen a TV where the picture quality was clearly better than my (final gen) plasma.

        • +1 vote

          @caitsith01: Yeah interesting, thought as much. very keen to try one out instore. thanks.
          would like to wait a bit longer, but my plasma has an image issue which is sort of forcing my hand.

        •  

          @skitzor:

          That's annoying - I would imagine prices will drop permanently to the low $2000s if you can hold out for 6 months now that there are multiple players.

          The new Panasonics are very appealing on a number of fronts:

          • ridiculously good colour accuracy out of the box

          • good motion, especially compared to standard LED

          • reasonable input lag for gaming (compared to final gen Panasonic plasmas, this was about the only thing wrong with them)

          The Sony is by far the most attractive physical unit and has incredibly vivid colour. I'm a tad skeptical about the 'screen as a speaker' concept.

    Can I use my creditline card for interest free purchase? As in pay it over 12 month sort of thing?

    •  

      You have to pay with PayPal to get 20% off.

      •  

        I see. Will attaching PayPal will work? Is the card only good for apple purchases?

        •  

          Just add card to paypal and will charge card.

        •  

          @wxyz234: yes. Sorry but id like to know if itll be an interest free purchase which could be paid of a year or so. That would be awesome if it works that way.

    Great to I have had my one for about a year and love it

    Why is the 65 so much more expensive than the 55?

    It's only 18% wider in diagonal length. But it costs 67% more.

  • +4 votes

    Be careful when choosing click and collect for OLED. You aren't allowed to turn the box on it's side so it's harder to transport. It has a little tab on the side of the box that turns dark if the box is tipped on it's side.

    • +3 votes

      Even worse if you're having it delivered. As if a courier is going to read or give a shit about the warnings.

      My gas hot water boiler said it could not be delivered tipped on its side. It needed to be upright. We brought a van to Bunnings to buy it, take it home and install it ourselves (my brother in law knows how to install these). When Bunnings helped us take it to the van, they saw that the only way we were going to get it in was to lie it flat, and they refused. They said they would not honor warranty if we took it home lying flat. So I got a refund, and ordered it through their installation service. We'd have to pay for delivery and a plumber to install it for us. The plumber showed up. Guess what? He transported it to us in a trailer… lying flat.

      I doubt a courier is going to bother following whatever is written on the box. You won't even know that he didn't. Unless you see him unloading it before he rings the bell.

      • +2 votes

        Wont you know that he did if as fatpizza said, the little tab on the side of the box has turned dark?

        •  

          Exactly. You should refuse delivery if the tab shows its been tipped on it's side.

        •  

          @fatpizza: If you refuse delivery, will you get your money back? What if he tells TGG that you were the one who tipped it, or that it was already like that when he got it?

        •  

          Does it permanently turn dark or does it change back? Is it allowed to lie flat? If you lie it flat will it turn dark also?

  •  

    Sorry if it's a noob question, but I wonder if am able to use my Go Master Card in conjunction with this deal, to pay an interest free monthly amount, say for 36 months etc?

    Perhaps by asking Good Guys to match their eBay store, or adding my Go Master card to my paypal account?

    •  

      You can add the credit in your PayPal, then choose to deduct the fund from it not your bank account.

      •  

        And by doing so, will I get the 36-month interest free offers from Go Master Card in conjunction with TGG?

        • +1 vote

          No I doubt it, usually the store has to log on to the GE portal and add it as interest free, if you simply add the car to ebay it will charge you the 20% or what ever it is as a normal sale so becareful..

  •  

    How does this tv that retails for 4k have only 12 months parts and warranty ? That concerns me.

  •  

    I’d love the 65" but too far off the 55" price.

    •  

      If the 65" got to the 3k mark I would probably buy it. I have a 46" LCD 10 years old so even 55" would be a significant upgrade. 65" would be my maximum given room size, viewing distance.

      That use an lg panel…

      •  

        Yeah, and still achieve significantly different results.

        The basic panel doesn't tell you anything about the way motion, colour, brightness, etc are ultimately handled.

        •  

          The Panasonic OLED is actually considered the best overall. However LG OLED is better for gaming/HDR and Sony OLED has better motion/processing.

          Contrast Performance: Panasonic 65EZ1000/EZ1002 OLED first with 4.62 points, Sony 65A1 OLED second with 4.43.
          Color Accuracy: Panasonic EZ1002 tops with 4.70; LG B7 second with 4.37
          Motion: Sony A1 tops with 4.35; Panasonic EZ1002 with 4.19
          Uniformity: Panasonic EZ1002 tops with 4.49; Sony A1 second with 4.10
          Video processing: Sony A1 tops with 4.51; Sony ZD9 second with 3.98
          Gaming: LG B7 tops with 4.46; Panasonic EZ1002 second with 4.11
          Bright Room: Samsung Q9 tops with 4.37; Sony ZD9 second with 3.77
          HDR: LG B7 tops with 4.19; Panasonic EZ1002 second with 4.11

          @Ryballs: LG B7 though?

          rtings seem to say there are slight differences between B7, C7 and E7.

          with the C7 coming in slightly better overall than the A1. Be nice if they still did panasonic over there.

        •  

          As far as I'm aware any differences are just due to panel lottery.

        •  

          @Ryballs:

          Not sure why you're replying to me, you're agreeing with me.

    Great TV! Got this on the last deal for $3 more by price matching with HN.
    Only gripe is that it uses Miracast, which is annoying when I'm in the chromecast ecosystem

  •  

    Expired :(
    Any chance their warehouse would get more stock before this sale ends on Monday? If not, would there likely be another sale leading up to xmas?
